Saturday started with a drive to Montrose, PA, where I was honored to be the guest speaker at a quilting day sponsored by A Stitch in Time Quilt Guild. Almost 150 women met for a day of quilting, food, fun, and laughter. My friend Maria was head honcho for this event and what a great job she did!
Sue S. from New York State had her finished Dresden Plate quilt completely done. The border fabric was what she started with.
Here's a detail of the center plate and a bit of the quilting. Sue also had a finished Stained Glass Tulip quilt, but my camera was out of reach. Trust me when I say it was beautiful--and hand quilted, too!
After all the festivities, Maria, Kathryn, Evelyn and Bonnie took me to Endless Mountains Quiltworks in Tunkhannock, PA (www.EMQuiltworks.com). The shop is one of AP&Q's Top Quilt Shops and is absolutely delightful. The owner, Jeannette Kitlan, couldn't have been nicer or more welcoming. I found some treasures which I will share in another post.
On my way home I came across two viaducts. Here are pics of one (the smaller). This is on route 11 in PA and is just a structural wonder! It is wide enough to accommodate two trains running on parallel tracks.
So there you have the news from yesterday! It was a wonderful day from beginning to end. Many thanks to all the ladies who made it such a success!
